"Top 5 Hurricane Vulnerable & Overdue Cities"

From the The Weather Channel:

"(New Orleans, Gulfport-Biloxi, Galveston and Houston are examples of locations not on this list because they've recently been severely hit.)

While certainly not an exhaustive list, the following five metropolitan areas have been selected based on a combination of the amount of people and property at high risk, and how long it has been since the area has been directly affected by a very strong hurricane. It is a matter of when, not if, these areas are struck next."

Drumroll, please...

#5 Atlantic City, NJ

#4 Savannah, GA

#3 Tampa Bay

#2 New York City, NY

#1 Miami / Ft. Lauderdale

And just to show that they care about your safety if you live in these areas, The Weather Channel has posted links to evacuation maps for each of these locales.
